March 2, 2006
LAS VEGAS - The Rebel volleyball team begins its spring play with the UNLV Spring Scrimmage Tournament on March 4. The tournament will be held inside the Cox Pavilion practice gym and runs all day starting at 9am. The Rebels will be joined by seven junior college squads from California, Arizona, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming.
The tournament will hold a one-on-one format from 9am until the final predetermined match at 2 pm. Playoffs will start at 3 pm and consist of cross bracket matches. At 5 pm the championship and consolation matches will take place.
The Rebels are coming off a 15-15 fall schedule in which the team went 10-6 in Mountain West Conference play. It was the second straight year that UNLV had a plus-.500 conference record following 2004' 8-6 tally. The 2005 Rebels reached the conference semifinals and fell short of advancing to the program's first MWC final with its tough defeat to BYU in the fifth game.
